Sandy:Chances ABA allows a one time reduction in requirement

Postby FitterHappier289 » Tue Oct 30, 2012 12:55 pm

in course hours? I live in Brooklyn and my school is in NJ. I don't know the next time I'm going to be able to get to school.

People think there is any chance of this?

Attendance is taken every single day and every class I've had cancelled has been rescheduled. So, yes.

You should be fine, LSAC is making exemptions, AMA is accommodating UMDNJ, if the ABA does not make an exemption, the wonderful, courteous, activists at RU-N are going to have a seizure. Plus, I have full faith in Gov. Christie and the Congressional Delgation of NJ to tear into the ABA if need be. Say what you will about NJ politicians, but they don't mind rustling some feathers or going to the press.

Stay off the roads and stay dry, brother.

at NYU, for at least one class I already got an email from a professor telling us that he will extend all classes in order to meet requirement :(

No doubt the vast majority of professors will be accommodating (waive attendance policy; record/video tape any makeup classes, etc).
